Gobblin

18 Jul 2018

Gobblin is a distributed data integration framework that simplifies common
aspects of big data integration such as data ingestion, replication,
organization and lifecycle management for both streaming and batch data
ecosystems.

Gobblin has been incubating since 2017-02-23.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

   1. Make frequent releases

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

 No

How has the community developed since the last report?

* Various major components and futuristic features are being driven by the
community
 (non-committers) thus building a very healthy pool of contributors that
can be voted
 in as committers.
* Continued growth in engagement over Gitter IRC, and mailing lists.
* 79% of commits (a record in Gobblin community) were from non-committer
contributors.
* Email stats since last report:
 user@gobblin.incubator.apache.org : 44 dev@gobblin.incubator.apache.org :
200
* There have been 66 Commits since last report:
   git log --format='%ci' | grep -cE '(2018-0(4|5|6|7))'
* 52 ie. 79% of those commits were by non-committers:
  git log --format='%ae %ci' | grep -E '(2018-0(4|5|6|7))' | cut -d ' ' -f 1
  | sort | uniq -c | sort -n
* Recurring video conference based meetup has been happening every month
with a
 healthy attendance.
* Gobblin was presented and well received in various meetups / conferences
 around the world (independently by Apache community members).

How has the project developed since the last report?

* Major progress in Gobblin's evolution as Platform-as-a-Service - being
driven
 by couple of non-committers.
* Comprehensive work being driven by a non-committer for stability of
Gobblin
 cluster at extreme scale.
* Enhancements to key integrations such as Salesforce, Couchbase, Kafka,
etc.
* Addition of features for compliance and security. Increased adoption in
this
 area by the community (for critical use-cases such as GDPR).
* Release 0.12.0 done.

How would you assess the podling's maturity?

Gobblin is a distributed data integration framework that simplifies common
aspects of big data integration such as data ingestion, replication,
organization and lifecycle management for both streaming and batch data
ecosystems.

Gobblin has been incubating since 2017-02-23.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

 1. Make frequent releases

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware
of?

 None

How has the community developed since the last report?

* Gobblin has seen an exciting growth on the community front. It has grown
 into a diverse self-sustained community, where non-committer members are
 often seen helping out each other on mailing lists and Gitter IRC (on most
 days more than the committers). Many contributors have also stepped up and
 contributed with important features and taken up ownership of critical
 components.
* 70% of commits have been from non-committer contributors.
* Email stats since last report: user@gobblin.incubator.apache.org : 92
 dev@gobblin.incubator.apache.org : 671
* Heavy activity on Gitter IRC channel (while the community uses Gitter IRC,
 it also does self policing and consciously moves any discussion-thread
 beyond casual chatter to the mailing lists)
* There have been 148 Commits since last report: git log --format='%ci' | grep
 -cE '(2017-0(9))|(2017-1(0|1|2)|(2018-0(1)))'
* 103 ie. 70% of those commits were by non-committers: git log --format='%ae
 %ci' | grep -E '(2017-0(9))|(2017-1(0|1|2)|(2018-0(1)))' | cut -d ' ' -f 1 |
 sort | uniq -c | sort -n
* Recurring video conference based meetup has been happening every month with
 healthy attendance.
* Gobblin was presented and well received in various conferences eg. Strata
 etc.
* More companies have adopted Gobblin, and different members of PPMC have
 received positive feedback and interest.

How has the project developed since the last report?

* Several new powerful features have been added to Gobblin that have enhanced
 Gobblin to be more valuable in Stream processing as it is in batch data
 world.
* Gobblin interestingly has started to evolve into an ecosystem rather than a
 singular platform with addition of major sub-systems such as
 Gobblin-as-a-Service (PaaS for Gobblin as well as non-Gobblin systems),
 Global Throttling (can be used with any distributed system) and existing
 Gobblin metrics.
* Documentation and stability has improved across the board.
* Release v0.12.0 is being voted on right now.
* The Apache way has become the normal way of doing things.

How would you assess the podling's maturity?

Gobblin has made good progress on the Community front and overall as a
project. However, before calling it nearing graduation, we will like to make
atleast couple of releases.

 2. Elect new Committer(s) / PPMC.
 3. Update links on website and documentation.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

 None

How has the community developed since the last report?

* 15+ major companies, startups, universites and research institutes are now using Gobblin (refer to Powered-by section [1] here: https://gobblin.apache.org/ )
* Email stats for last month:
 user@gobblin.incubator.apache.org : 25
 dev@gobblin.incubator.apache.org : 163
* There have been 40 Commits in last month:
   git log --format='%ci' | grep -cE '2017-0(9)'
* 29 of those commits were by non-committers:

* Another video conference based meetup happened last month with good attendance and interest.
* We are continuing to work towards our first release.

[1] This data was collected before incubation via a survey. It was expanded to include more companies as and when requested by respective contributors.

How has the project developed since the last report?

* Continued active development.
* Progress continues to be tracked via JIRA / Sprint dashboard.

How would you assess the podling's maturity?

There is an all around progress, and the podling is working towards its first release.
